Jo Guldi is Professor of Quantitative Methods at Emory University.

She is also a scholar of history who uses machine learning, statistics, and other big-data methods to approach the traditional concerns of the humanities. Before joining Emory, Guldi served as was on faculty at Southern Methodist University (2016-2023) and was also previously Hans Rothfels Assistant Professor of History at Brown (2012-16).
